"Best Drive in beach Kannur Kerala"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Nov 13, 2017
Incredible India. Ever heard of a drive in beach in India? Well you can enjoy this privilege, this magnificent clean beach here in Kannur Kerala. We did a few rounds on the quad bikes and collected so many shells and starfish. Muzhappilangad Drive-in Beach is a beach surrounded by greenery. It is located parallel to National Highway 66 between Thalassery and Kannur in Kerala. Drive-in beach with 4 km approximately of firm sand and shallow water, attracting cars and motorcyclists taking their vehicles through shallow waves. It is a good beach to swim in. Our vehicles went right up to the beach front and parked for the best view in the house!! India is truly incredible. Kerala is all about all the never seen before - try North Kerala for a good change and adventurous places time. It is easily accessible by bus and is a safe tourist spot. Don't forget to take your hats and water to hydrate yourselves. At noon the sun is too strong, go before 11 am or after 4 pm to avoid getting sun burn or too hot.

"A Drive - Through Beach"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Nov 12, 2017
This 5-km drive-in beach stretch - Muzhappilangad beach is situated in Kannur district of Kerala which is towards north of Calicut. Itís approx 6 kms from the Highway after Thalassery, before reaching Kannur. Unlike other beaches, you can actually drive a car or ride a bike along the sea shore, due to hard sand formation. The drive-in beach is well maintained and clean, considering the number of visitors it attracts. Water level is low and safe for children. It is the longest Drive-In Beach in India and holds the distinction of being among the top driving in beaches in the world. Must see attraction in Kerala. It is a niche experience of driving through sea waves and that too for around 5 kms. The beach sand is firm like road and you can drive car or bike, but you need to be careful of loose sand patches. Great scope for photography during sunrise and sunset - as well as with your vehicle or rented Quad bikes. The beach is not as commercialised as of other beaches in Kerala.

"Muzhapilangad drive in beach"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 9, 2017
Planned this trip to have a drive in muzhapilangad beach which was an excellent experience. The beach is clean, nice to drive close to sea, with good breeze. This beach could be visited any time of the day irrespective of sunlight when driving by vehicle but better to be in day to avoid crowd. This is a rare experience to drive 4kms in a beach with wheels hitting water. Any traveller visiting Kannur with own vehicle should feel this driving experience.

"Kannur only for this Drive-in !!"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 15, 2016
Very good and clean beach. You can play for hours and still want to play more.
You can get into waters and take your vehicles to the water. It is a great feeling and you must try.
Only setback is the beach does not have any refreshments and toilets.
